Inauguration of the new SPVM district station 5 serving Dorval and Pointe-Claire
Mr. François Morier, Commander of district station 5 (PDQ 5), along with the Director of the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal, Mr. Fady Dagher, and the Head of Public Security, Ville de Montréal, Mr. Alain Vaillancourt, invited the elected officials of Dorval and Pointe-Claire to inaugurate the new facilities of district station 5 (PDQ 5) located in Pointe-Claire. The event that brought together guests and police officers from the neighborhood police station took place this Wednesday, May 17, 2023.
The Mayor of the City of Dorval, Mr. Marc Doret, and the Mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Mr. Tim Thomas, took the opportunity to remind us about the importance of neighbourhood police stations for their communities and to highlight the positive impact of local services on the quality of life for their residents.
The new building
The police station was designed to take advantage of the vertical space to limit the footprint and preserve the adjacent wooded area as much as possible. The visitors’ entrance is universally accessible so that the public can easily receive services.
The 975-square-metre building was built in accordance with sustainable development principles: energy-efficient windows with low emissivity, allowing the sun’s rays to pass through in the winter and filtering light in the summer; white roof; parking space made of concrete rather than asphalt to reduce heat islands, and prioritization of local products and materials.
The former 460-square-metre police station will then be equipped for the requirements of the Inspection – Public Security Department of the City of Pointe-Claire.
An open house for the new district station 5 (PDQ 5) is planned for Saturday, May 20 to allow residents of Dorval and Pointe-Claire to visit the new facilities. Several specialized units will be on site during the day so that residents can learn all about the expertise of the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal.
